Full casting has been announced for the limited engagement of Ink at the West End’s Duke of York Theatre, following its sold-out run at London’s Almeida Theatre.
The new play, directed by Rupert Goold (King Charles III), follows a young Rupert Murdoch on the verge of founding the U.K.’s most influential newspaper.
The returning cast from the Almeida—joining the previously announced Bertie Carvel as Murdoch and Richard Coyle as Larry Lamb—includes Oliver Birch, Rachel Caffrey, Pearl Chanda, Geoffrey Freshwater, Jack Holden, Justin Salinger, Sophie Stanton, Tim Steed, Tony Turner, and Rene Zagger, with Jonathan Coy joining the company to play the role of Hugh Cudlipp. They will be joined onstage by Natalie Law, Andrew McDonald, Jonny McPherson, Owen Oldroyd, and Joel Samuels, who form the ensemble.
The run begins September 9 and continues through January 6, 2018. Over 20,000 tickets for the Duke of York run will be priced at £20.
Previously, Graham wrote the book for Broadway’s Finding Neverland; Ink marked his Almeida debut.
